Meet Scott, the owner of Frontier!
So, do you go by Dr. Loepp or Scott or do you have any nicknames?
We like to NOT stand on pedestals at Frontier. Most clients call all of us docs by our first names. But either is fine.
In your words, what is your job at Frontier?
I work about ½ time as a clinician seeing patients, and ½ time as hospital director.
Our main responsibility of course is our patients, but we also spend a lot of time on working to provide great client service. In addition, I am also responsible for providing quality jobs for the roughly 30 team members who work at Frontier Vet.
Why did you decide to work at Frontier?
I came to Oregon as a brand new vet in 1984, and liked the hospital owner. So I took a job here. I’ve been here ever since; never got fired, or promoted.
Tell us a little known fact about you!
I actually like cats a lot more than most folks believe that I do!
